Subject: LWP::UserAgent error message: HTTPS support
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 397b
Hi, if one tries to access HTTPS URLs and both Crypt::SSLeay and IO::Socket::SSL are not installed, it won't work. The error message from LWP says that the user needs Crypt::SSLeay but LWP::UserAgent will also work with IO::Socket::SSL, without the SSLeay dependency. In the attached patch I've fixed the error message, please review and consider including it if it's reasonable. Cheers Antonio
